South Aliomanu Beach - Kauai
This beach is made up of two sections of beach: north and south Aliomanu. It's a beautiful stretch of sand, although it is one of the lesser-known beaches on Kauai. South Aliomanu beach is the more popular of the two and is used by locals for fishing, octopus hunting and seaweed harvesting right off the offshore fringing reef. The south section of this beach also has a lagoon which allows for some swimming.
Parking is limited to just a few spots in the designated lot, and can be very tight if full. The path to the beach is next to a beautiful stream area, with homes that come right up to the water.
